Editorial review:

A “slice of New York urban chic” close to Covent Garden, this Philippe Starck-designed hotel St Martins Lane is barely noticeable from the outside. (In that glass box??) Its 204 rooms have floor to ceiling windows and spectacular West End views. The public rooms are busy meeting points and everything is beautiful.

              Floor-to-ceiling windows at St Martins Lane pull the cityscape into each guest room, offering a dramatic perspective on the energetic city below. The newly designed rooms by Tim Andreas of Banjo evoke a sense of spaciousness and luxury by using a mix of both naturally inspired and modern materials such as linen draperies, a pale leopard print carpet with white lacquer, and etched glass surfaces that shift in colour as the guest moves around the room. The overall effect is an ethereal, yet sensuous experience.

                  Nice stylish hotel near Covent Garden, the food at the restaurant asia de cuba is exceptionally good.

                  The rooms are quiet small

                  The problem was the noise in the hall and at the restaurant so after one try we did not return to the restaurant for diner..

                  Staff friendly and eager and willing to help if a little informal in approach: Bathroom very comfortable with especially pleasant lighting. Location is perfect for anyone wanting to attend West End theatres or the Coliseum (ENO).

                  Comfort of guests sacrificed to pretentious "boutique design" image. Loud pop music in all public areas. Absence of any comfortable seating area for guests: foyer had large wooden chess pieces and low (?)wooden stools, a brass sculpted chair and one individual upholstered armchair with no occasional table. So called "superior" bedroom had only one small metal chair with sculpted seat. Absence of bedside table compelled me to use this for glasses etc. at night. Lift was lit only by three pretentious screens displaying moving images and was so dark I could see floor numbers only with difficulty. Spirits rose when I saw floor to ceiling books in restaurant only to discover they were another pretentious design gesture: treatise on organic chemistry etc - "books by the yard". Ironic that I had to send out and pay £3 for newspaper with breadfast while surrounded by such reading material. Mr Starck should be made to spend a night in the hotel and introduced to the joys of literature!

                  The public areas of the hotel are original and attractive. The location was good and the room well appointed.

                  There was no obvious facility for making a hot drink in the bedroom although we were advised at checkout that facilities would have been provided if they had been requested! The room guide did not mention this. Nor did it make the breakfast arrangements clear. It ssemed that breakfast was only available through room service but, in fact, breakfast could be taken in the restaurant. On our first day (our only full day) the room was not made up or cleaned even though we had not placed any "do not disturb" label on the door! The room was cleaned after we complained on returning to the hotel early evening!

                  A different experience. The staff greeted me by my first name which I like a lot. Interior design is cool, I loved candles in the bathroom.

                  Couldn't log on to the Internet with my iPad although I was charged the Internet service - which was advertised as free upon booking :-(

                  Friendly staff offering information on where to eat and what to see.

                  A less formal space as an alternative to the restaurant and quieter than the bar for coffee would be a bonus.

                  What makes the hotel unique, apart from the virtuosity of philippe starck, is the super-organizations, or the practical smart minds of the staff that magically transfers your requirements into acts in few seconds. The people are very friendly and polite. The atmosphere is so smart. In our room, there was a small garden, unbelievable to have in the centre of the city of london. Small presents make you feel special. People and ambiance is in accordance with the expectations regarding london, the centre of design :). it touches the senses...

                  The hotel was Contemporary and minimal designed to it. The service was excellent and made me feel welcomed.

                  The room service had the 15% service charge plus addictional delivery charge which I didn't agree with.

                  As soon as you walk through the door you feel welcome, all the staff are polite, professional and very helpful. Our room, although smaller than you would expect for the price, was perfect, with everything you needed.For us the location was key, only a couple of minutes from theatre's, restaurants and shops. We would definately stay again and would highly recommend trying their Raspberry Mojito.

                  If I had to find fault, it would be that the air conditioning in the bar did not seem to be working very well, however the temperature in the bedroom was fine.

                  Great location, friendly service and stylish decor.

                  Rooms are a good size but made somewhat cramped by an oversized TV cabinet and fridge structure. Tea making facilities would be a great addition.

                  I booked this hotel as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday. We loved it. The staff were very helpful and attentive. We were offered an upgrade for £40 on arrival which meant our room would be ready for us straightaway at 11am. We were shown the room first to check whether we liked it. The location was amazing right inbetween Covent garden, leicester square and trafalgar square. Tonnes of brilliant places to eat right on the door step. We were out for dinner and drinks with friends in the evening, when we returned back there were too mini cupcakes in our room and a note wishing my husband a happy birthday. We stayed in a delux room and it was the perfect size for us. Had wondered whether the all white decor would be a bit clinical but it felt very luxurious with the right amount of comfort and cosiness. We would definitely return again.

                  I was slightly disappointed that we were not upgraded automatically as other guests had been when it was for a special occasion. There were no tea or coffee facilities in the room and only one small bottle of complimentary water. However, we did order a jug of coffee via room service and we easily got 2 big cups of strong coffee each for £10 which included a tip and room service charge which I didn't think was too bad.

                  Great location, stylish interior, YouTube on tv (play audio version of songs only, not videos, otherwise it breaks up).

                  The walls are paper thin, you can hear everything going on in the rooms either side of you. Strange they'd spend so much money on designing this stylish hotel but not bother about soundproofing the rooms!
